Easy Cranberry Sauce Recipe

Keep It Simple With a Zesty Cranberry Sauce

A solid cranberry sauce recipe is a key component of any traditional Thanksgiving menu.

This cranberry sauce recipe is all of the above, plus it incorporates a bright addition of orange zest that adds to the flavor profile. It's incredibly simple, and although I usually enjoy it once a year, I can't help but think that it would be wildly delicious on toast or even with cheesecake. Keep on reading for the recipe.
